Do you pray for a loved one or anyone else who has left the Church?

Would you be interested in going on a retreat to pray for this intention?

This Jubilee Year of Mercy is a grace-filled time to bring our prayers before God for all those people we love and know who are in need of prayer and also for those we do not know.

Spend a weekend during this Year of Mercy to learn principles of intercessory prayer and spend time praying for prodigal family members, friends, and others to return to God the Father and experience His mercy. The retreat includes presentations, and witness talks on intercessory prayer, time for personal prayer, Mass, Eucharistic adoration and opportunities for spiritual direction and confession.
